Johnny Manziel and a few of his Cleveland Browns teammates decided to support the Cavaliers by attending Thursday’s home opener against the New York Knicks. Nothing wrong with that right?

Except in today’s age of Instagram videos and Vines, ‘Money’ Manziel was caught yelling some not-so-nice words to the refs after what seems like a bad call against the Cavs.

In my opinion there’s nothing wrong with yelling from your $10k+ court side seat during a game but of course anytime Manziel is involved it’s news worthy.

Check out the video for yourself and see if there’s anything wrong with Johnny’s behavior:

Ty Lawson Doesn't Want Lil B Curse

Whether you believe in the ‘Based God curse’ or not, there’s no denying the fact Kevin Durant has suffered a plethora of bad luck since his feud with Lil B.

Denver Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson doesn’t want to be the next victim.

Kobe Bryant chose Halloween night to turn back the clock on a poor unsuspecting Matt Barnes. Bryant, in all black, drove baseline on Barnes, and crushed a nasty reverse dunk.

This isn’t what you like to see if you’re a Bulls fan.

On the surface this seems minor, but with Rose, any kind of injury brings automatic concern.

Kyrie & Love Amazed At The Playoff Intensity Of 2nd Game (Video) http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2014/10/kyrie-love-amazed-at-the-playoff-intensity-of-2nd-game-video/ http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2014/10/kyrie-love-amazed-at-the-playoff-intensity-of-2nd-game-video/#comments Sat, 01 Nov 2014 02:24:03 +0000 http://blacksportsonline.com/home/?p=256592 love-irving-playoff-intensity

Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love are going to experience first hand what it’s like to be the hunted. In the matter of one summer, the Cleveland Cavaliers went from afterthought, to NBA Championship favorites.

The Cavs were upset at home by the Knicks in the season opener, and traveled to Chicago for the Bulls home opener in game two of the regular season.

During the break in action, Irving and Love can be seen having a conversation on the bench. Of the superstars blurted out this question.

” Is this what playoff basketball feel like”

I’ll let our readers decided who was amazed at the playoff intensity so early on in the season.

Klay Thompson finally received his lucrative max deal of $70 million over four years. Golden State definitely values his skill set, but what probably pushed the deal was Sacramento’s late push.

Sacramento tried to pull a fast one.

Bulls Fans Scream ‘No!’ After D Rose Tweaks Ankle vs. Cavs (Video) http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2014/10/bulls-fans-scream-no-after-d-rose-tweaks-ankle-vs-cavs-video/ http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2014/10/bulls-fans-scream-no-after-d-rose-tweaks-ankle-vs-cavs-video/#comments Sat, 01 Nov 2014 02:02:46 +0000 http://blacksportsonline.com/home/?p=256587 derrick-rose-ankle

I mean can you blame them.

Derrick Rose had an outstanding first half against the Cavs in the Bulls home opener, dropping 18 points in the process.  Bulls fans held their collective breaths after Rose came down wrong on his ankle after stepping on Kyrie Irving’s foot.

Rose was alright, and promptly walked it off.

Jimmy Butler Turns Down Bulls Extension http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2014/10/jimmy-butler-turns-down-bulls-extension/ http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2014/10/jimmy-butler-turns-down-bulls-extension/#comments Sat, 01 Nov 2014 01:36:31 +0000 http://blacksportsonline.com/home/?p=256582 Jimmy Butler plays one-on-one against Mark Wahlberg.

Jimmy Butler turned down the Bulls extension offer making the Bulls top defensive player a restricted free agent next summer. Considering Butler and the Bulls could not come to a proper agreement, seems Jimmy is betting on himself.

“It came down to me deciding that I want to bet on myself,” Butler told Yahoo Sports in a text message on Friday. “It was about me believing that I put the work in this summer to become a better player with the hope that my improvement will give the Bulls a better chance to win a championship.”

 

While players such as Klay Thompson, Eric Bledsoe and Gordan Hayward are reaching deals Jimmy Butler seems to be the odd man out when it comes to an agreement on an extension. Butler Agent Happy Walters had some choice words for the Bulls organization.

“All the [rookie extension] deals done so far have shown that teams are building around their stars of the future, and they’re compensating those players as such,” Walters told Yahoo Sports on Friday. “I was under the impression Jimmy was also viewed as one of those future building blocks with the Bulls.
“We tried like heck to get something done, but ultimately, the Bulls wanted a ‘hometown’ discount. While understandable, I doubt their GM or coaches give Mr. Reinsdorf a discount when negotiating their own deals.”

 

With Butler and the Bulls not coming to an agreement Butler can command more money on the open market in the range of $64-$70 million as an elite perimeter defender. The Bulls maybe taking a chance but Jimmy offer sheet just became expensive.

Belichick Throws Shade Towards New England Meteorologist http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2014/10/belichick-throws-shade-towards-new-england-meteorologist/ http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2014/10/belichick-throws-shade-towards-new-england-meteorologist/#comments Sat, 01 Nov 2014 01:00:32 +0000 http://blacksportsonline.com/home/?p=256580 Bill Belichick

Bill Belichick is not always the happiest person when talking to the media, nor is it easy to get a sentence out of him. The New England Patriots take on the Denver Broncos in a huge AFC matchup. Both Tom Brady and Payton Manning are coming into the game blazing hot with four game winning streaks respectfully between the two. Considering Belichick factors everything into his game plan, I can understand Belichick gripe towards New England area meteorologist with inconsistent reporting of weather on the verge of a huge game. The Coach had some few choice words when talking to media Friday morning.

FSU’s Carolyn Egan Reported FB Post of Karlos Williams Pregnant GF to Cops http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2014/10/fsus-carolyn-egan-reported-fb-post-of-karlos-williams-pregnant-gf-to-cops/ http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2014/10/fsus-carolyn-egan-reported-fb-post-of-karlos-williams-pregnant-gf-to-cops/#comments Fri, 31 Oct 2014 23:09:37 +0000 http://blacksportsonline.com/home/?p=256573 Miranda Wilhelm Karlos Willams 2

The Facebook post above was posted by Karlos Williams pregnant girlfriend saying that he abused her. It was reported that it wasn’t the pregnant girlfriend who reported the abuse but someone else who saw the post.

That someone else according to emails acquired by Deadspin was FSU general counsel Carolyn Egan.

Facebook email

That got the ball rolling on the current official investigation. FSU has taken a lot of heat for covering up things, but in this case it appears they were trying to do the right thing. Williams hasn’t been charged or arrested with any crime.

With stories of football players involved in violent crimes, domestic violence and assault against people you would think that all football players are bad people. Well with this story coming forward of five California football players being arrested and charged with aggravated assault, reckless endangerment, harassment and conspiracy just makes you cringe to hear.

The five players allegedly involved identified as James Williamson, Corey Ford, Jonathan Barlow, Rodney Gillin, and D’Andre Dunkley all football Players of California University brutally stomped a man so severe that he suffered severe injury to his brain.

Witnesses watched as the five players stomped the man unconsciousness and flee the scene yelling “football strong”. To the make the story worse emergency workers reportedly visualized a footprint on he victim face.

The altercation reportedly started when the victim (Lewis Campbell) confronted one of the players for talking to his girlfriend. The five players charged are being held on $500,000 bond.

The incident led to the university canceling its football game against Gannon. Lewis Campbell is in intensive care unit at Allegheny General Hospital.

Who knew Goran Dragic was this good at Halloween pranks.  The Suns point guard set up a fierce semi-machine operated dinosaur near the entrance to the Suns practice facility.

one-by-one, Suns players encountered the baby T-Rex, some laughing it off, and some like Eric Bledsoe really running for their lives.

The Suns owner, Robert Sarver, was truly frightened.

Jazz Agree To 4-Year, $42M Extension With Alec Burks http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2014/10/jazz-agree-to-4-year-42m-extension-with-alec-burks/ http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2014/10/jazz-agree-to-4-year-42m-extension-with-alec-burks/#comments Fri, 31 Oct 2014 20:33:25 +0000 http://blacksportsonline.com/home/?p=256538 alec-burks-extension-jazz

The Utah Jazz have reportedly agreed to a four-year, $42 million extension with shooting guard Alec Burks.

Burks will make $42 million and up to $45 million with incentives in a four-year deal that begins in 2015-16, according to a Deseret News source.

By agreeing to a deal before tonight’s 10 p.m. deadline, Burks avoids entering next offseason as a restricted free agent. That scenario, however, awaits the 22-year-old Kanter, who followed Gordon Hayward’s footsteps in testing the market before agreeing to a four-year, $63 million deal.

Burks’ contract is in the Derrick Favors’ range (four years, $47 million-plus), and the Jazz now have three young key cogs signed through at least the 2016-17 season. The 23-year-old Burks is contracted with Utah through 2018-19.

Burks is averaging 16.5 points per game on the season, and 9.5 over his career.

Report: Connor Cook Will Return to MSU For Senior Year http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2014/10/report-connor-cook-will-return-to-msu-for-senior-year/ http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2014/10/report-connor-cook-will-return-to-msu-for-senior-year/#comments Fri, 31 Oct 2014 20:27:21 +0000 http://blacksportsonline.com/home/?p=256536 ConnorCook

Connor Cook gave Michigan State coaches and fans something to smile about on Friday when he announced on The Dan Patrick Show that intended to return for his senior year.

Connor Cook said it on “The Dan Patrick Show” on Thursday morning and again after practice in the evening — the Michigan State junior quarterback intends to return to school for his senior season.

“That’s the main goal,” Cook said Thursday. “I’ve always talked about it with my parents and stuff, and you want to use up your eligibility. Michigan State’s a great place, and I’ve had a lot of fun here and I had a lot of great relationships. You never want to kiss stuff good-bye. I looked at it the same way as graduating high school early to come to school. You only have one prom, you only go to high school once, you only go to college once is how I look at it. But things could change if, you know, things go really well. I don’t know. But my goal, my main priority is to use up my years here at Michigan State.”

Some NFL analysts project Cook as a potential first-round pick in the next draft, but late in the ABC telecast of MSU’s 35-11 win over Michigan, draft analyst Todd McShay was emphatic that Cook needs another season in college.

“I think he has a high ceiling,” McShay said of Cook. “I think he can become a very good NFL quarterback. … I would say this to Connor Cook: You need another year. He’s come a long way from a year ago. There’s a reason why statistics back up underclassmen struggling when they leave early. He can be a good quarterback at the next level, but I think he needs one more year. Come back to Michigan State, there’s a good supporting cast, this is the right place for him to be next season.”

Cook has been a popular name among scouts whose stock has been on the rise this season. There has even been talk that Cook could hear his name called within the top 20 picks in April, so it’s a bit surprising to see him come out say he is returning to school. Needless to say this is huge news for Michigan State in 2015, expect to see them ranked in the top 10 preseason.

College Football Previews: Can Auburn Leave Oxford Victorious ? http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2014/10/college-football-previews-can-auburn-leave-oxford-victorious/ http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2014/10/college-football-previews-can-auburn-leave-oxford-victorious/#comments Fri, 31 Oct 2014 19:59:23 +0000 http://blacksportsonline.com/home/?p=256464 Bo Wallace

College football is already off to a great start this week after Florida State rallied from being down three touchdowns early on the road against Louisville to win by double digits. Now the focus shifts to Saturday and we have plenty of action inside the Top 25 as teams gear up to make a run at the college football playoff.

#3 Auburn vs. #4 Ole Miss

Won’t find a better game to watch this weekend when Auburn strolls into Oxford to take on Ole Miss. The Rebels are looking to rebound from an upset loss to LSU in Death Valley, while the Tigers are coming off a road victory over South Carolina. This game features arguably the best defense in college football against a very potent offensive attack that can ground it out on the ground or move the ball through the air. The Landshark defense has shown it is more than capable of slowing down any style of offense so far this year and I think they match up well against Auburn. This game will once again come down to the performance of Ole Miss quarterback Bo Wallace. If Wallace can play well and take care of the football, I like their chances of coming out with a win and getting back on track in the SEC West. If Wallace struggles and gives the Auburn offense too many chances, they will suffer a similar fate as they did in Baton Rouge.

Prediction: Ole Miss

#7 TCU vs. #20 West Virginia 

Can the Mountaineers pull off the upset again? That’s the question on everyone’s mind as they host TCU in Morganstown this weekend and I think we will get us an offensive shootout. Clint Trickett and Trevone Boykin are both having outstanding seasons and have been tossing the pigskin all over the yard this year, I expect plenty of fireworks early and often. WVU has shown us from the jump that they shouldn’t be taken lightly by anyone, but TCU is my favorite to win and win the Big 12 title this year. I’m rolling with the Horn Frogs in a close one.

Prediction: TCU

#12 Arizona vs. #22 UCLA

Out West we go as we get us some Pac- 12 action between the Wildcats and the Bruins out in the Rose Bowl. While the Wildcats handled Washington State this past week with relative ease, the Bruins squeaked out a victory in double overtime against Colorado.Arizona is a missed field goal away from being undefeated and I think they are more than capable of going into LA and getting a W.

Prediction: Arizona

#14 Arizona State vs. #17 Utah

More West coast action out in the valley of the sun as Arizona State hosts the Utes from Utah. With Taylor Kelly back in the saddle, the Sun Devils notched a victory against Washington last week as Utah went down to the wire against USC and managed to come away with a win. Utah is in the middle of a brutal three game stretch of ranked opponents and think the lack of a potent passing game will end up rendering their strong run game worthless in Tempe. I think Arizona State will be able to get out and front early and rely on DJ Foster and Jaelen Strong to will them to the finish line.

Prediction: Arizona State

#5 Oregon vs. Stanford 

I don’t care what the records are when these two teams square off, it is always must see TV.Is this the year that Oregon finally gets over the hump and beats the Cardinal? Marcus Mariota has yet to notch a victory against Stanford since he took over the starting job for Oregon, but I think Stanford’s lack of offensive production will cost them this year. Despite playing well of defense, Stanford has been allergic to the end zone all year long.

Prediction: Oregon
